The Phlebotomy Technician Program is a two-semester program that begins annually in the fall. The first semester students take a PBT prefix course where basic laboratory concepts, safety and venipuncture techniques are introduced and practiced. The second semester (spring) is the clinical experience for the phlebotomy portion of the program. Students complete 135 clinical hours and 100 successful venipunctures, which will make them eligible to take the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) certification exam for phlebotomy technician. The remaining coursework is general education courses.
